Virginia City Brewery & Taphouse was originated by three partners. Longtime residents of the Carson City and Reno areas, the team has worked in the Piping/Mechanical/HVAC Industry in these areas for the past 30 years. Over the years they have worked on and toured many breweries that gave them the inspiration to build their own, their way.
The team acquired a local and knowledgeable brewmaster veteran, who worked with them to develop ideas and practices making their plans a reality. Now the only question was – Where? They decided to break the modern mold and looked for an area that was rich in local history, an area that is friendly where people like to get away for a day or an evening, something different. Where better than Historical Virginia City, Nevada?
Virginia City’s deep, rich history is a perfect setting for this Brewery and opens in the same town that originated brewpubs in the state of Nevada. Virginia City Brewery and Taphouse will be producing beers in our 15BBL system. Our facility is located at 62 North C Street, and the building housing the brewery was built in 1876, after the Great Fire.
